CONSERVATION AND DESIGN OFFICER
£40,869 – £43,860 (PO4)
Full Time, Permanent
Waltham Forest is vibrant and distinctive, making it a fantastic place to live, work, explore and invest. With more green space than any borough north of the Thames and great transport connections to the city and beyond, it’s a place that people want to call home.
We are proud of our built heritage and the value that conservation can play in both celebrating the past and informing the future. We have over 100 listed buildings, 14 conservation areas and a number of other important local heritage assets in the borough where ongoing management, advice and guidance is required. Waltham Forest was also London’s first “Borough of Culture” in recognition of our thriving arts and cultural community, including our well-established links to William Morris and his significant and renowned influence as a designer, craftsman and conservationist.
We are looking for a dedicated conservation and design professional with a strong awareness and understanding of conservation and urban design principles, policy and practice and their practical application. You will have excellent negotiation skills and the ability to present ideas and proposals effectively, with proven experience of providing conservation and design advice to officers, councillors, developers and the public.
In addition, you will have a good understanding of broader regeneration issues within an urban environment and the role that conservation can play in delivering high quality design and development. You will work closely with planning and regeneration colleagues, as well as other relevant disciplines, and have a strong commitment to working with local people in raising awareness of good design and conservation.
